Essentia Health announces visitation policy changes for senior care communities

Maintaining the health, wellness and safety of our senior care residents is our top priority. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic,

Essentia Health has followed strict guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health as well as Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to limit the potential transmission of COVID-19 in our facilities.

At this time, Essentia Health Lincoln Park Senior Apartments, Lincoln Park Assisted Living and Winchester will no longer be accepting routine social visits. Access will be restricted to essential visitors and compassionate care situations.

We are committed to safeguarding the health and wellness of residents and preventing the spread of illness. The visitation policy is being evaluated on a routine basis and subject to change at any time. This current visitation policy will be in effect for at least 14 days and reevaluated at that time.

For the most up-to-date information on senior care visitation, please visit EssentiaHealth.org/seniorvisits or call (218) 314-7599.
